Tuck away from the buzz of Lago di Garda, Mercato Coperto dei Formaggi is a true heaven for cheese lovers. This is a family run cheese store located in a very small town of Gavardo, about 15 min car ride from the southern part of Lago di Garda. Rest assured that you would not leave this store empty-handed! The owners exude absolute passion and fascination for what they do: they let you try almost every single cheese and take time to explain where it comes from, how to best consume it and what wine to pair it with.

Rest assured that you would not leave this store empty-handed! The owners exude absolute passion and fascination for what they do: they let you try almost every single cheese and take time to explain where it comes from, how to best consume it and what wine to pair it with.  The shop has a focus on Italian mountain cheeses and of course parmigiano! Local specialties not to be missed are taleggio, bagoss, heavenly gorgonzola (perfect creamy consistency to be put on a crisp cracker), pecorino matured in hay, blue cheese from Frambosa, Piedmont region, (very strong blue cheese paired beautifully with fortified wines) and the list can go on forever. Mercato also offers a variety of local salami as well as hams. Everything is so fresh and appetising that it is impossible to leave the store without purchasing a few of the delicacies. In addition the store offers various jams to accompany cheeses and a few other local specialties.
